ERIC BLEDSOE

while sitting here watching duke play i started wondering why there wasnt a bunch of pot about this guy after his first game(which was better then walls)?.wall didnt have as good of a first game yet there was a good 5 post about him...both are freshman and since it was only one game and not off of potential im wondering why he didnt get his props

because people on this site

because people on this site hype wall to the fullest i man he is a good player but he isnt great i think he neeeds to work on alot of thing give him time to develop i remmeber one time somebody said he is going to be the greatest point guard of all time and when the tempo is slowed down wall doesn't know what to do.

I think it's because most

I think it's because most people had their eyes on Wall most of the time in the 3rd game, no one (even though I did) really watched the other Kentucky games because Wall wasn't playing. So Wall's 1st game was more hyped and all eyes were on him, not to mention Bledsoe played terrible last night.

yeah but im nt talking about

yeah but im nt talking about how he played in the second game..before the second game even started...and even the people who didnt even watch the game wall played in were going crazy about reading the stats...it pretty much shows a certain type of bias..my thing if if someone playes well reguardless of there hype they should at least be aknowledged...i beat if wall pu up the number bledsoe did then he would be considered the next greatest freshman ever

Isn't Wall already

Isn't Wall already considered the next greatest freshman ever??

True, Wall still has a ways to go on certain aspects of his game, but Bledsoe does too. He had 7 turnovers in the game against Morehead. Both are freshman and are playing in an offense that demands you to drive into the lane, so I expect their turnover #'s to be up a little bit to start the season. Once they calm down a little bit they won't be so erratic and making stupid turnovers.

That sure was a wake up call for the Big Blue Nation. Expectations are still way too high for us right now. The potential is there though.

Ppl care more about Wall on

Ppl care more about Wall on here then. It's nothing personal, it's just that more people were anticipating Wall's debut more than Bledsoe's....

thts why i said bias...im a

thts why i said bias...im a true basketball fan..i like..if a player is playing good or plays well then i give praise and pay attention...i guess thats also what seperates a good scout from a regular scout..they go and see and remeber players who arent real hyped compared to the average scout who just looks at the hyped player

See another John Wall Hate

See another John Wall Hate post. And another thing failed to be mentioned is that John Wall played his debut with Bledsoe so he had to share the shine, While Bledsoe was given the keys to takeover in the backcourt in his debut

What are you talking about?

I was being sarcastic when I made that comment. Calm down.

Plus, your post doesn't even make sense. You put a question mark and you aren't even asking a question. If you were meaning to ask a question then go back through grade school and learn how to type a complete sentence.
